Quotes

I believe that all art has as its ultimate goal the union between the material and the spiritual, the human and the divine.  And I believe that that is the very reason for the existence of art and what I do.”

– Michael Jackson, Singer/Songwriter

“Any great artist… is wrestling with their sadness and loneliness; their fears, anxieties and insecurities, and they’re transfiguring those into complicated forms of expressions that affect our hearts minds and souls and remind us of who we are as human beings; the fragility of our human status and the inevitability of death.”

Dr. Cornel West, Activist/Author/Princeton University Professor of African American Studies

“No one understands another’s grief, no one understands another’s joy…My music is the product of my talent and my misery.  And that which I have written in my greatest distress is what the world seems to like the best.”

– Franz Schubert, Classical Composer

“Music is the dominant force in my life.  To me, the most important thing is music.  The musician and the instrument are subservient to it.”

– Max Roach, Jazz Drummer/Composer

“…Great art is a projection of an individual’s highest, most evolved self and that its creation flows from the God within them, an inner energy that transcends their everyday human traits.  The transcendent power of art derives directly from how it connects the creator and the audience to the highest, most divine part of themselves.”

Nelson George, Author/Filmmaker

    Thank you for sharing these words of wisdom. The MR quote is new to me but I’m not surprised he’d say something like that. It’s a true representation of how he lived and thought. On the anniversary of his death, it reminds me of how succinct and prolific he always was.
